Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Serious question for musically inclined sorts...DEAD/nonDEAD

When I mentioned the Dead in the era of Cream, being limited in their "improvisational vocabulary" I was being unclear, That point was not really meant as a comparison. That observation would true of both bands . A good jazz player would, even if they enjoyed the music , might note the limits, of the the nuts and bolts level, of these improves . But your comparisons of the two bands improve styes says it much clearer than anything I might have to have said . The Dead were just a more interesting, even within said limits , and I have clocked in a few million hours listening to this stuff and loving it . But the punch and power, of the Cream, and the pure badassery of Clapton's playing with them, is something I enjoy too .
